The NAIA announced they are canceling all remaining winter championships, effective immediately. 

This includes the first-round NAIA DII championship game College of the Ozarks Women’s Basketball was scheduled to play at 3:30 this afternoon. The Lady Cats left College of the Ozarks Monday morning for Sioux City, IA. The team was seeded at no. 2 in the Cramer Bracket, and set to play no. 7 Lawrence Tech of Michigan. 

A release from NAIA stated on Thursday that the decision was due to COVID-19, and the health and safety of their student-athletes and others involved in their championship events is the NAIA’s highest priority. They are continuing to monitor COVID-19 developments and plan to determine the best path for future NAIA events, including spring 2020 championships.
